Short Bio

Last comments


A native of Piraeus, Greece, joined CWI in September 2013 as a Post-doc researcher in the Database Architectures research group where I study how to handle efficiently multi-dimensional data (e.g., geospatial data) in the context of a modern database, in specific the column-store MonetDB (http://www.monetdb.org). I obtained a PhD from the Dept. of Informatics and Telecommunications, University of Athens, where I studied how to represent and query spatiotemporal information in the Semantic Web. I am also on of the main developers of the open-source geospatial RDF store Strabon (http://strabon.di.uoa.gr).
